Quoted from Ipswin


I just hope my lifetime  lasts until next winter. I'm 68 with bowel liver and lung cancer and my wife has low immunity due to drugs she has to take for her conditions. Apart from a shopping trip before 8am today while it was quiet we're closing the door and sitting tight. Like Pete I don't want my grand daughters or my son round to see us Trouble is how long does one isolate for? I don't think we are anywhere near the peak so it could be Halloween before it's safe to emerge


I may not always agree with your footballing opinions but I would be very happy to see you safe and sound through this current crisis.

Pretending the virus is different in the Uk to leaky France Spain Ireland and the rest is crazy, Whoever is in power should be using a wide a field of experts and data to what works as possible. We seem to have a government being too pro active, this is only my opinion. Nothing is definatively right or wrong but most countries are taking swifter and more decisive action.
That the Tories have let waiting lists get to record levels is a fact, That they have cut billions from social care is a fact, that the NHS is already working at capacity, has over 40,000 infilled vacancies and has people on trolleys in corridors is a fact and whatever the mumbling lump of lard in charge says the lack of investment over the last 10 years is coming back to bite us


To use this potential epidemic in the UK to try to score political points against a political party you don't subscribe to is crass at the very least.

Are you for real or just a troll or can’t you read? Nobody said it was a different virus, simply that the way of dealing with it will vary from country to country and anyone with an iota of common sense would think rightly so. Making cheap political points is just juvenile and helps nobody.

I find it's pointless asking the "how long?" question. I concentrate on the next week (just like football managers!). I know I have to isolate this week, probably next week, but after that is not my concern. The football season will look after itself, and won't start in August if everything is in full swing.

Trouble is Rob I don't see things being any better in two weeks in fact there will be far more folk infected by then so the chances of getting infected will be higher. If anything I suppose its better to do stuff now while (in E Anglia anyway) its not yet that widespread. Just glad I don't have to commute to a large city or use the underground etc.

I'm not that bothered about football matches now or next season but I had one last trip to Amsterdam planned (in June for the Euros) before the EHIC system ends so thats cancelled.


One enormous step forward at last followed by two steps back again. It has to be a clear out from the top, the players and the manager, no going back. An opportunity missed Hurst out

Pretendin



Nothing I have heard or read has implied that this is a different virus but the ways to tackle it differ from country to country. Our Government must be advised by the departments that deal with the health and wellbeing of our people in a situation like this. They are the experts and, along with the WHO, are best placed to advise.
In answer to a previous post of yours on this subject, there isn't a health service in any country on this planet that could 100% deal with a pandemic like this. Here in the UK,with our health care system, we are better placed than most and we have the expetience of other countries response to this virus on how best to tackle it.

Confirmed tests:

Italy 15113 & 1016 deaths.
Uk   798     & 10    deaths.


The estimated cases for the UK is 10.000-not confirmed test results.
The number of unconfirmed cases in Italy who are ahead of ourselves in the spread will be ten of thousands.

China has used very strict quarantine methods which wont be used here or in Europe.
